The King Edward

37 King St. E, east of Yonge St., Toronto, Ontario, M5C 1E9, Canada

Toronto's landmark "King Eddy" Hotel, which has hosted the well-heeled for over a century, continues to be a favorite choice for special occasions and a nod to grand hotels of the past. Oil paintings hanging in Victoria's Restaurant provide an elegant backdrop to lunch and afternoon tea while the lobby's Consort Bar, once home to a grand piano, now offers four flat-screen TVs instead. But junior suites are comfortably large and may offer access to the Royal Club on the 11th floor where a well-presented Continental breakfast and complimentary Ontario wine and cheese is served. Guest rooms are decorated in floral patterns recalling a bygone era, though they've been modernized with iPod docking stations.
